The final season of Drew Brees in black and gold was largely a rerun of the previous: excellent regular season either side of a month-long injury layoff, followed by a playoff faceplant. The Saints retained enough pieces on defense to stay relevant while they identify Brees’ long-term successor, but between Brees and the cap cuts they got weaker in a division where the rest of the teams appear stronger. If Jameis Winston or Taysom Hill can immediately step in as a top-16 quarterback, the Saints are in a position to contend quickly. If not, a challenging transition awaits.  – Andrew Potter
